I saw those awhile back. I would love to hear them, but $750 is a big chunk of change!Not Coral but has anyone seen these? Look a little overpriced.
They look like corals? Kinda cool.Not Coral but has anyone seen these? Look a little overpriced.
Where are you crossing the Neo3 in? How do you like it?As I listen to these CHB Frugal Horns today I'm at a lost for words. With all the work on other projects I've not spent time with them in a long time and not in their current location. The clarity and detail is just shocking. If I could only have one pair of box speakers it would be these. If anyone is considering another enclosure save yourself the effort and build the CHB Frugal Horn Mk3's. You'll thank me later.

I've used Neo3's in exactly the same way many times. They are a fantastic tweeter, and can add just the right amount of hf, ime.I use a 1.5uF cap on the tweeters to filter the LF and power both the CHB's and tweeters with a SET amp. The CHB's run full range without any filters or corrective circuits. The tweeters add some sizzle to the top end which some folks may or might not need. I used them in OB's before so with the back plate removed they radiate in both directions. I listen to mostly jazz and appreciate how they reproduce the shimmer of high-hats. Thanks

i wonder how they would sound in my aiko horns?
What's that big woofer @Poultrygeist ? Does it work well in such a small baffle?
